My name is Anna Sondergard. I’m 31 years old, and I married the love of my life and best friend when I was 22 years old. I realize now that I was just a baby, but I wouldn’t change it! We were high school sweethearts, and after being married for 8 years, we are pregnant with our first child!
I was born and raised in Portage, Michigan. Although I’ve lived in many places since then, Michigan will always be one of my favorite places of all time. Summers are fantastic, and parts of Lake Michigan will have you thinking you’re in the Caribbean. My parents were my biggest supporters and encouraged me to follow my passion for volleyball. I received a scholarship to play volleyball at Spring Arbor University where I earned honors as an All-American. I was the youngest of three girls, and my beautiful sisters are blessed friends.
My faith in Jesus is the most important part of my life, and one of my favorite things to do is serve along side my husband. We’ve both been on several mission trips and relish every opportunity to share God’s love and grace with others! I believe in using the gifts God has given me, and I am blessed that I can use design as a way to serve people and pursue my passion at the same time! We have the most fantastic dog, Wheatley, who will always be our “first born.” He’s a german boxer and he’s named after Tyrone Wheatley, a University of Michigan football player. He’s 80 pounds, but he truly believes he’s a lap dog. I think there are going to be some major problems when I have the baby in August and Wheatley isn’t able to be the #1 priority any more!
My whole life I’ve had a passion for interior design. Both my grandfather and uncle are builders, and when I was in middle school I used to help them clean the new houses for their customers to move into. Nothing beats the smell of new construction…nothing. Since then, I’ve been able to turn my passion into a career. I have designed office spaces, restaurants, new homes, old homes and everything in between. As you read in one of my other blog posts, I flipped a house and it was one of the greatest learning experiences of my life!
This is just a glimpse into my personal life. I’d love the chance to get to know you!
